What kind of Guild is this?
TUC is a community-centric Hex guild which focuses on PvE raids, deckbuilding and dungeon crawling. We are a friendly international community of both professional and non-professional players who seek to enjoy Hex in a non-competitive manner.
We are one of the oldest founding Guilds, starting on the Cryptozoic forums during pre-alpha development in 2013. We created TUC to serve as a base and home for all friendly PvE interested players. It's a place to relax and enjoy the company of like-minded people.
It's also a place to master PvE. We want to fully explore every dungeon, find every secret, loot every piece of gear. We want to build amazing combo PvE decks and share that knowledge. We want to team up with others and take down a tough opponent. Most of all we want to have a blast doing it.
Will you be taking part in PvP and tournaments?
Absolutely, especially as the current closed beta is pure PvP!
In the future our main focus will be on PvE gameplay, however right now members are playing PvP draft constantly and can represent the Guild officially in organised tournaments if they wish. We've also got some great events lined up to get the most out of Beta.
We also plan to take part in friendly inter-guild tournaments from time to time.
How are you run? What are your ranks?
We run TUC as a diplomatic tiered council, with the most active members being given more responsibility.
The Inner Council is TUC's leadership and decision making body. They are TUC's administrators who manage the Guilds services and sites and resolve and decide upon matters which affect the entire Guild. They are frequently advised by the Patrons.
Patrons are TUC's guild officers. They are responsible for interacting with the community, running guild events, helping out with recruitment and forum moderation. They are generally our most active and vibrant members of the community.
Acolytes are our general members. A Guild is nothing without a community behind it and we are proud to build a community of friendly players. Acolytes game together, chat on the forums, share ideas and take part in our events. They also control our rate of Guild growth - they endorse our trial members for advancement after getting to know them.
Initiates are our new trial members. After signing up they can access the Guild forums and immediately jump into the game with us. TUC uses a 'Advancement through Community Feedback' approach to promoting full members.
Guild Mentors are among some of our most veteran players. They support the community by offering advice on deckbuilding, gameplay strategy and by helping train new players.
You have a Guild website?
We most certainly do, built by ourselves and privately funded. No annoying adverts! No fees!

This looks great, how do I join?
We will need you to head on over to our site and submit an online application. An admin will review this to check that you fit in with our Guild values before accepting you as a new Council Initiate. You may or may not be asked an additional question, be sure to keep an eye on your email!
Accepted Initiates have access to most of the forums, the voice server and can game with us. After you have received ten recommendations from existing Guild Members you will be advanced to full membership and have access to all of the guild events and resources.
So why do we have this system in place if we are a relaxed Guild?
Our application form acts as a buffer between people who do not wish to communicate maturely and our regular members. In other words, it blocks casual trolls as it requires a little time to fill out.
The trial period is to absolutely ensure that we are accepting friendly, mature and active Hex players into our community. We want our members to be proud of their Guild and most importantly we want them to enjoy being a part of it.
Anything else I should be aware of?
Yes, by signing up you agree to follow our Guild Rules of Conduct. Please read through these before submitting an application.
Actually, I have some Questions...
Feel free to ask below, we regularly check this thread. You can also publicly use our shoutbox on the guild site or drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your interest in the Unnamed Council! We hope to game with you soon.
